Domestic Violence Defense
Domestic violence allegations can be extremely damaging. If you are charged with a crime of domestic violence the district attorney’s office can petition the court to have you held in pre-trial detention in a county jail as a “so called” dangerous person for up to 120 days. For individuals not held in custody the court could impose pre-trial conditions of release. Common conditions of release may require you to vacate your home, have no contact with your partner, and even prevent you from seeing your children. If you are convicted or admit to committing an assault and battery on a family or household member or violation of a restraining order you will be required to attend, and pay for, a forty session, court ordered intimate partner abuse program, where you will be required to admit that you are a domestic abuser.
